House Votes to Approve Washington, DC Statehood

A Washington, DC license plate with "End Taxation Without Representation" is displayed on an automobile in downtown Washington, DC on Friday, June 26, 2020. The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to pass a bill for the first time to approve statehood for Washington, DC, but it is not expected to be taken up by the Republican-controlled Senate. DC residents pay federal taxes but do not have a vote in the House or Senate. The tax phrase is from the American Revolutionary War era. Photo by Pat Benic/UPI
